    a different take on the typical westerns

    I very much enjoyed this collection of stories that took place in a mythical old west.
    Starting with a story that is very much like a typical western tall tale, to faerie tales, science fiction, demons and steampunk. This collection has something for everyone and will join a spot in my permanent collection. Definitely not a waste of time and something I am very glad I had a chance to read. I am very sorry that Martin is no longer with us so that we can continue enjoying his sense of timing and expertise in the realm of anthologies.
